CLEAR SPRING - Junior Jocyln Price fired a two-hitter, striking out nine, as Clear Spring squeezed by Greencastle, 6-5, Thursday afternoon in a high school girls' softball game.
Greencastle threatened with a seventh-inning rally, but Price shut the door to save the victory for the Blazers (2-0).
The Blue Devils (1-1) scored three runs in the top of the seventh to reduce the deficit to 6-5 and had the tying run on first base with only one out. But Price got the next two Greencastle batters to look at called third strikes and a forced a ground ball for the final out.
"Jocyln had them off balance and they certainly did not hit her very hard," Clear Spring coach Drew Michael said. "Missy South did a good job defensively and she called a nice game behind the plate. She also threw out a runner trying to steal second and got two big hits for us."
